There will come a day when you see YOU again. Outside of motherhood (I know how easy it is to get lost in there). Someone with interests and talents and passion and relationships. And, oh my goodness, you will really LIKE her!!
I don't have a baby anymore...and, suddenly, for the first time it's okay because I know I will NEVER FORGET.
One of my main jobs as a parent is helping my children GROW UP.
